About Michael Freund

We've lived here for 50 years, and bought and remodeled this

1820 house in 1978. We're both artists, and the house is filled

with paintings and sculpture. In summer the house is surrounded

by lovely gardens, and the views from the porches are of the

surrounding meadows and fields, and of the river with its private

beach. In winter we ski off the porch onto miles of gorgeous

cross country trails. Being at the end of a dead end road adds

to the feeling of a unique and peaceful hideaway.

The posting for this property undersells its true beauty. It is nestled in a secluded area that is right on the bank of the White River with plenty of places to explore and bask in the natural beauty of this Vermont. There is an ample amount of places to get groceries and the distance from Killington couldn't have been more perfect. The house is set up wonderfully with art work adorning every wall in the house. The hot tub was perfect after a long day of snowboarding and the ample amount of board games in the house really allowed everybody to truly connect to each other and disconnect from cell phones and other distractions we are all too used to. I cannot speak highly enough of the owners and how accommodating they were. Every step of the way they were there to answer questions of mine so that our weekend went seamlessly. This was a perfect weekend with my friends and I hope I will be able to visit this property again!
